It’s March 9th but, as also the weather forecast sites write, the spring is struggling to take off. The sky is often lead gray, if it does not rain, and it’s hard to wear something colorful…
Black is always a safe option, but not to be too dark I always like to contrast it with white, a combination which I think is fine in any season and you’ll often find in my blog.
Today my look also highlights another strong contrast, almost a worn oxymoron, that I really love as a concept: match warm clothing to other very light, rustic-style pieces to other more chic or refined.
And so here I am, with a big sweater and a petticoat!
The sweater I wear is Falconeri of a couple of years ago, heavy but soft and very warm. Size L, is 70% extra fine merino wool and 30% cashmere, with a high neck and cable stitch pattern on the front.
The skirt is actually a vintage underskirt, one of those that once upon a time were worn as underwear to cover and keep warm, but also to let the fabric slide and avoid the static effect on the body. Being old, it doesn’t have any brand or composition label.
Being the sweater bulk and slightly big, I wanted to emphasize my waist with a little belt in fake braided leather H&M.
The gloves are Merù made in synthetic fibers, in theory suitable for the use with touch screen.
The necklace of faceted black fake pearls has so many years that I don’t remember where I bought it.
The cap is in acrylic with pom poms in rex lapin, unbranded.
The boots are Bruno Premi a few seasons ago, always size 40.
The tights are made of wool, Calzedonia. Because ok about the petticoat, but i don’t want to die of cold …
Thank you Michele Tabacco for the photos.
See you soon!
